Various The Mighty Striker Shoots at Hits
- Words: Chris Sabbath
- Label: Moll-Selekta
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
If a Mount Rushmore in honor of Jamaica’s most legendary record producers is ever sculpted, it’s fair to say that Bunny “Striker” Lee’s likeness should be cut into stone alongside Clement “Coxsone” Dodd, Duke Reid, and Joe Gibbs. During the rock steady and roots reggae years of the late ’60s up until the late ’70s, Lee’s name became synonymous with consecutive chart-topping hits on Jamaican radio. The Mighty Striker Shoots at Hits highlights some of Lee’s best work during the roots reggae boom of the 1970s, mashing up covers and originals from roots rockers such as Barry Brown and Johnny Clarke with ballads by Cornel Campbell and Ronnie Davis. This compilation is an essential for all reggae collections.
